Vehicle Accident Dispatch

Today Fire District #2 and Miami County EMS crews were dispatched to a serious single vehicle accident. While en-route we were told we had two patients that were trapped. Upon arrival of the first unit we found a trash truck had left the roadway and was on its top with severe damage. We found two patients trapped and a highly technical extrication was going to be needed to remove the victims of the accident. I determined that we were going to need a large wrecker to respond to assist in the extrication and vehicle stabilization. With the assistance of Johnson County ECC and the Miami County Sheriffs office your company was notified to respond. Upon the arrival of your company they were immediately put to work to assist the fire crews in extricating and stabilizing the truck. To say that your company and employees whom represent your company were helpful in the extrication would be an understatement. Your company and employees proved to be a very important part of our rescue / recovery operation. They were extremely knowledgable and helpful. They worked seamlessly with the on scene crews. We had a total of 36 responders on scene from Life Flight Eagle, Overland Park Fire, Miami County EMS, Johnson County Fire District #2, Miami County Sheriff and Johnson County Sheriff. Your crew fell right into our operations. Your crew was very safe and took all possible safety precautions to assure the safety of themselves and the other responders. Your company and your crew proved to be a valuable asset to our cadre of tools. Please share our appreciation of your employees efforts and ability to fall into an extremely intensive rescue / recovery effort. Fire crews were there for a total of 7.5 hours and your crews were there for about the same amount of time if not longer. We ended up having approximately a 1.5 hour extrication on one patient and were able to get him transported. Unfortunately we were not able to save one occupant of the truck and the recovery proved to be very challenging. Because of your crew, your equipment and your company we were able to speed up the rescue and recovery efforts meanwhile ensuring the safety of the responders.
